Biography

Andrew was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus, his first surgery was the day after he was born and his vp shunt was inserted at 9 days old, he is a full time wheelchair user.
He is currently recovering from brain surgery that he had on Wednesday and then again on Saturday. They have removed his shunt because his body kept rejecting it so they opted for an ETV which is to drill a hole and make an opening through the third ventricle in his brain but there is only a 30% chance of success, so far he has been shunt free since Wednesday with no seizures but is still very poorly. He is home and recovery will be around 6-8 weeks so he's not going back to school until he is fully fit, Andrew is a very active young boy who loves being out to play with his friends and the next few weeks will be hard for him, he has a long road ahead of him but lots of tlc should help him along the way x
